Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet "Clos des Briords" '18

Here is a little insider secret. People in the wine business love Muscadet. Ever since I started in this business over two decades ago, I've loved Muscadet. It was then, and still is today, the wine of the people. Affordable, crisp, delicious, great with food, and actually quite complex. Every since I can remember, I've been buying, selling and drinking the wines of Marc Ollivier of Domaine de la Pépière. Located just southeast of the city of Nantes, Ollivier and his partner Rémi Branger produce classically-styled wines. This wine, his "basic" bottling is a downright steal. Mélon de Bourgogne grown on granite, 25-year old vines, that are hand harvested. No skin contact, fermentation with natural yeasts, and 8 months on its lees without racking. The 2017 is fantastic, bright, briny, lemony and crisp. I can sit around and drink bottles of this, but it also goes without saying that this is a great wine to pair with fish. It's not just oysters that goes with Muscadet, I love it with grilled whole sea bream.
